Opinion: Prince and His Guitar Stir Pseudo Non-Controversy

Warning! Sexy!The second I saw that big sheet go up, I knew this would happen.

According to USA Today, a few twitchy folks who haven't been loved enough thought they saw something they didn't during Prince's halftime performance at the Superbowl. If you weren't one of the 92 billion people who watched the broadcast (that's an official Nielsen statistic, by the way), then perhaps you missed the moment when a spotlight projected Prince's well-endowed shadow on a giant tarp (USA Today captured the Purple One in all his projected glory). As often happens when a performer known for sexually charged material plays his oversized guitar in front of millions, folks got an eyeful of ... well, nothing, but dammit, they thought they saw something.

If you've ever seen Prince perform -- hell, if you've seen any guitar player ever perform -- you know he's contractually obligated to execute the high-note-hip-thrust gyration at least 10 times during every solo. And yet, people are surprised that Prince ... PRINCE, FOR CHIRSSAKES ... had a PG-13 moment during his surprisingly tame Superbowl performance. Prince could make Jello look phallic, so what do you expect when you put PRINCE in front of a worldwide audience? All those uber-conservatives should be grateful he didn't reenact Bacchanalia with four giraffes and Apollonia. -- Mac Slocum

People really are idiots... always looking to complain about something. I actually read a statement from the NFL saying that they haven't received ANY complaints.

Something tells me that after this one idiot tried to make a name for himself, people will come out of the woodwork on how they were subliminally shocked.

More shocking was Prince's face. Has this guy aged a day since he recorded "1999?"

Thought that was hysterical! Prince one ups the FCC. Right on.

Plus, it's the tallest Prince will ever be (his shadow, that is).

I'm surprised him or his two 80s styled dancers didn't take a nosedive on that wet, slick stage.

Loved that he covered Foo Fighters "Best of You."

One of the best halftime shows EVER.

Oh! I forgot about the dancers... were they twins or did Prince breed them in his underground lair?
